OPTEK - VSA Series

The 713VSA

VSA - Overview

The VideoMic VSA split-axis series provides rapid, noncontact 3-axis coordinate measurement with increased accuracy. This capability allows the user to verify critical dimensions on first articles, production samples, or entire runs. With toleranced reporting, thresholds can be set to enable timely corrections to the process or, when necessary, interruption of production to minimize scrap.

Balanced Linear Motors position the stage accurately, quietly, and quickly. High magnification optics relay the image to a high resolution CCD camera and from there to the frame grabber where our sub-pixeling algorithm permits sub-micron measurements.

A magnified view of the feature being measured is displayed on the screen and can be stored with all relevant data or printed on the optional color printer. Once measured, the feature coordinates can be stored, analyzed, and/or exported to other software programs for further in-depth analysis.
